Silva impressing in Germany
Andre Silva has had a fairly mixed senior career to date.
The centre-forward started out playing in his home country of Portugal, and developed into one of Porto’s most promising young stars. He then earned a big-money move to AC Milan in 2017.
However, Silva struggled for form in Italy, and was eventually loaned to Sevilla, where his fortunes were again mixed.
In turn, in September of 2020, Milan eventually decided to part ways with the now 25-year-old, moving him on to Eintracht Frankfurt.
And, since making the move to Germany, Silva has completely turned his career around.
Last season (during a loan stint), the attacker racked up 12 goals and four assists in 25 Bundesliga outings.
But it is the current campaign which has seen Silva produce some of his best football at senior level. The 37-time capped international has managed to score a staggering 20 goals, to go along with five assists, in just 23 league appearances.
Manchester United-linked Silva on transfer rumours
Such fine form, in turn, inevitably appears to have attracted interest from elsewhere in Europe.
A recent report from Sky Germany claimed that Manchester United are intensively scouting Silva.
And now, the player himself has responded to the transfer speculation surrounding his name.
Silva, though, did not seem overly concerned, simply stating that ‘rumours are rumours’:
“I’ve heard rumours, but that is it. Rumours are rumours. At the end of this season, it’s something that gives me more motivation to work, it’s a sign that what I have accomplished has borne fruit and the path has been good.”
The Eintracht star was then asked to set his own price-tag, to which he responded:
“Around €105 million (£91m/$126m)?
“I’m kidding. I think I heard €30m (£26m/$36m) and something somewhere. When we sell our merchandise, we always increase the value a little bit.
“Things are as they are and, whatever happens around us, the most important thing is to look at me and what I can do.”
